Meghan and Harry took Archie to Doria Ragland's home on Mother's Day flouting lockdown norms, reveals insider
The source, however, said that all of them were mindful of social distancing measures while celebrating the day
Meghan has reportedly celebrated Mother’s Day with her mum Doria Ragland, who also lives in Los Angeles, pretty close to the ultra-luxury Beverly Hills villa the Sussexes are staying in.
A source revealed that Meghan with Prince Harry and their son Archie spent the special day with Ragland on the occasion of Mother’s day that was on Sunday, May 10. The source also said that all of them were mindful of social distancing measures while celebrating the day.
According to reports, Ragland is very close to her daughter and has also played an important presence in Archie’s life since the day he was born. The 63-year-old, whom Harry has described as "amazing,” was in London even before the little one, who turned one on May 6, came into the world. She reportedly supported Meghan a lot during the delivery and spent quality time with her grandson in the palace. She also lived with Meghan and Harry during their stay in Vancouver, Canada, before they moved to Los Angeles in March. The move took place just days before the two countries closed their borders due to coronavirus pandemic.
It has been said that Ragland was behind encouraging Meghan and Harry to work with Project Angel Food and help deliver food to the needy ones in the city. A source shared that last month, Ragland, “who is a frontline worker herself," had said that the organization was in great need of support during the time of crisis.
Meghan and Harry were then seen delivering food to residents living with critical illnesses and who can't step out due to the coronavirus lockdown. The former senior royal couple volunteered with the charity on Easter Sunday. They also helped the organization in delivering perishable meals to around 20 vulnerable people in the city after they learned that the charity’s drivers were "overloaded" and they need extra people to feed people during the quarantine.
However, it was not clear if Ragland was present for Archie’s birthday also. The grandson of Prince Charles turned one on May 6 and given the Covid-19 pandemic, no big birthday party was thrown. Meghan baked a homemade strawberry and cream smash cake for her son. The proud parents also shared a very special video of him with his mother. The video was shared on the Save the Children's Instagram account.
In the video which was reportedly shot by Harry, Archie was seen sitting on Meghan’s lap as she read him a children's book ‘Duck! Rabbit!’. The young one who is seventh in line to the throne was seen smiling and trying to grab the pages of the storybook in the footage shared online.
The caption of the post read: “Meghan, The Duchess of Sussex reads 'Duck! Rabbit!' for Archie's birthday. ‘Duck! Rabbit!’ with Meghan, The Duchess of Sussex (and Harry, The Duke of Sussex behind the camera), read to their son Archie for his 1st birthday. Happy Birthday, Archie!”
